Hey, if you don’t subscribe to this Newsletter, you can do so at the button below.

This week’s Classic Tom the Dancing Bug (published on GoComics yesterday) is “News of the Times: Local Funnyman Jailed” (from 1996).

And this week the GoComics Super-Fun-Pak Comix page has featured comics from this installment (from 2006, when my son happened to be six years old).

That’s it for this week. Have a blessed long weekend, friends. Remember to be kind to your aunts. And why not share this post with your cousins.


Below is an action shot of Otis last weekend, on his first trip to the beach, and his first time swimming. He is on the right, and his friend Tucker is left. I think he’s trying to use his tail as a periscope.

And I know what you’re thinking: How can I get even more out of Tom the Dancing Bug?? The answers are surprisingly simple and can be found below. I hope you’ll join me on the other side of the paywall. 🚪
